NJIT author to discuss newest book at Morris Museum on May 9
Date:5/1/2012

NJIT Professor David Rothenberg, author of Survival of the Beautiful (Bloomsbury Press, 2011) will present his revolutionary examination of the interplay between beauty, art and culture in evolution in a lecture May 9, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. at the Morris Museum, 6 Normandy Heights Road, Morristown. The talk is the last in a three-part lecture series exploring the intersection of art and science. Tickets are $15: To register, call 973.971.3706. Rothenberg will provide music with his lecture. Dessert and coffee will be served following the program.

Survival of the Beautiful: Art, Science, and Evolution takes inspiration from Darwin's observations that animals have a natural aesthetic sense. Rothenberg probes why animals, humans included, have an innate appreciation for beautyand why nature is beautiful. The beauty of nature is not arbitrary, even if random mutation has played a role in evolution. What we can learn from the amazing range of animal aesthetic behaviorabout animals, and about ourselvesare just a few of the many questions the book raises.

In Thousand Mile Song: Whale Music in a Sea of Sound (Basic Books, 2008), as well as the same-named CD, Rothenberg chronicled the rich, underwater universe of whale sound. To produce the material, Rothenberg traveled from Hawaii to Russia to play his bass clarinet while recording the sounds of whales in their native habitats. Booklist, a publication of the American Library Association, named the text one of the ten best science and technology books for 2008.

Why Birds Sing (Basic Books, 2005) was Rothenberg's first general interest book to examine bird song from the combined perspectives of science, music, and poetry and was the culmination of his interdisciplinary work since he began teaching at NJIT in 1992. Why Birds Sing has been published in the U.S., England, Australia, Italy, Germany, Spain, Korea, China, and Taiwan as both a book and compact disc.
